World Cup blues for millions in Brazil

Millions of locals are not sure they should be hosting the World Cup tournament at all.

    Tens of thousands of foreign fans are already in Brazil.

    It is hosting the competition for the first time in 54 years and for those visiting the country it is sure to be a tournament they will never forget.

    But for millions of native Brazilians the mood is far less festive.
